    What coating? The shiny coating? If it's that, it's supposed to be there.

    I think he means the uneven/warped mirror finish, and in that case, yes. You will almost never see a perfect mirror finish on anything made of plastic.

    The top shell casing is clear, it is color coated on the inside not the outside. It is the same way with the black 3DS.

    It is mostly noticable when you try and shine a light through the shell casing or the edges.

    Yeah, it's almost as if the 3DS already came inside a crystal case.

    Which is bad since crystal cases tend to scratch up easily. [​IMG]

    For those interested, Bestskinsever and Zagg are finally selling the 3DS protective skins. Their products are great. Have been using it for my Touch, iPhone and other electronics. You keep the look of your system while protecting it at the same time.
